Bug#845481: stretch alpha8 won't install on MacBookAir. no suitable video mode found. booting in blind mode.


Thank you for the information.
Meanwhile I tested other Stretch iso files. Stretch Alpha7 don't show this problem.

So it's indeed a *regression between alpha7 and alpha8*.

I don't know if this information is of any use to you.
Thank you very much for your amazing work on the kernel.

Further information:
jessie iso installer (
) works on the same machine.

I tested it myself and it is documented here :

So it seems to be a regression in the graphics stack between jessie
installer and stretch installer.
This might be related to CONFIG_X86_SYSFB which also caused bug
#822575.  Unfortunately I don't see a way to disable that at run-time,
but please re-test when the next kernel version (probably 4.8.10-1)
goes into the installer.
